Regulations Respecting Zoning at Greenwood Airport
P.C. 1995-1987 1995-11-28Whereas, pursuant to subsection 5.5(1)Footnote a of the Aeronautics Act, a copy of the proposed Regulations respecting zoning at Greenwood Airport was published in two successive issues of the Kentville Adviser on May 9 and 16, 1995 and in two successive issues of the Canada Gazette Part I on April 23 and 30, 1994;
Return to footnote aR.S., c. 33 (1st Supp.), s. 1
Whereas a reasonable opportunity was afforded to interested persons to make representations to the Minister of National Defence with respect to the proposed Regulations;
And Whereas the proposed Regulations are for the purpose of preventing lands adjacent to or in the vicinity of the Greenwood Airport from being used or developed in a manner that is, in the opinion of the Minister of National Defence, incompatible with the safe operation of an airport or aircraft;
Therefore, His Excellency the Governor General in Council, on the recommendation of the Minister of National Defence, pursuant to paragraph 5.4(2)(b)Footnote a of the Aeronautics Act, is pleased hereby to make the annexed Regulations respecting zoning at Greenwood Airport.Short Title
